Match Commentary

92' Liverpool bow out of Europe ratehr meekly in the end. Their fine first half performance was followed by a very average showing in the second persiod and they paid the price for their pfoligacy in front of goal. It is a problem that Benitez will have to address if any sort of challenge is to be mounted on the Premiership next season. Whether or not he will be the man who leads that challenge remains to be seen. A huge anticlimax after last year's heroic efforts by his team.
92' FULL TIME
92' Another corner from Liverpool is headed wide for another Liverpool corner. Benfica have dealt well with the aerial threat posed by the home team.
